Forever In Our Hearts
DAVID NORMAN PIERCE
1951 – 2019
It is with tremendously sad hearts that we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and brother, David Norman Pierce on Thursday, June 13th, 2019.
He was predeceased by his parents, Ken and Bertha Pierce; brother, Bob (Joan) Pierce; sister, Lynda (Al) Schantz; brother, Danny (Viv) Pierce; nephew, Cody Pierce and uncle, Darold Pierce (Vi).
Dave will be lovingly remembered by his wife, JoAnn; children, Taryn (Jared) and Andrew (Jacqueline); blended family: children, Kirsten (Jeremy) August and Kenton (Anjelica) Farrow; grandchildren: Connor, Harlow, Eli, Sydney and Addison; brothers: Pat (Pricilles), Mike (Jennifer), and Mark; sisters, Carol (Raimo) Kujula and Kathie (Howard) Cordick; and special aunt, Vi Pierce.
Dave was born in Montreal, QC on August 24th, 1951. The Pierces moved shortly thereafter to Moose Jaw, SK. After high school Dave worked with his father and brothers installing floor coverings. Dave married Connie Hamilton and they had two children, Taryn and Andrew. Dave spent 30 years working for the City of Moose Jaw, most of those as the City Assessor. While still working for the City, he met his current wife JoAnn Farrow, and his family expanded to include Kirsten and Kenton. Dave was known to many as “Butch”, but the titles of Grandpa and “Bumpa” brought him the most joy. Time spent with family and his five grandkids were of the utmost importance. Dave was lucky to call both Moose Jaw and the Okotoks area home, and his loss will be felt in both places. Dave and JoAnn enjoyed many northern fishing trips, trips to Mexico, Hawaii and Aruba, playing darts and pool, working on their acreage yard, visiting with friends new and old. Dave was an easy going, friendly guy who will be remembered by many and always loved so dearly by his family.
A Celebration of Dave’s Life will be held in Moose Jaw on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Foothills Country Hospice, 322001 32St E, Okotoks, AB T1S 1A5 would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Michelle Surtees, Funeral Director 306-693-4550 www.moosejawfuneralhome.com
